Where to Shop on Small Business Saturday


The holiday shopping season is sure to look and feel a bit different this year. But, while it may be tempting to avoid shops altogether and do all of your gift-buying online, there’s more reason than ever this year to get out and about on Small Business Saturday. The weekend after Thanksgiving, small businesses around the area will roll out the sales and the welcome mat for holiday shoppers. With the pandemic hitting independently owned shops especially hard, the holiday rush will be the vital boost that many need. And luckily, there are plenty of small businesses to support right near your Crane Chinatown apartment.

If you’re looking for options, head to nearby Jewelers Row. The iconic shopping area, less than a mile from your Crane Chinatown apartment, is the perfect spot to shop if you’re looking to impress your special someone this holiday season. Holiday engagements are always a popular choice and the dozens of independently owned jewelers in the area will have you covered if you plan to pop the question. Many of the shops have called historic Jewelers Row home for decades and are well-versed in engagements, with trained experts to help you pick out the perfect piece. Rings aren’t the only thing you can find here, as the shops sell everything from necklaces to bracelets to watches, so you can check off your entire list in just one trip.

While the jewelry shops are the cornerstone of the area, Jewelers Row is home to more than 300 merchants, stretching across a several-block area. From sweet shops to gift stores, and with plenty of restaurants where you stop for lunch, Jewelers Row promises a full day of shopping. Small Business Saturday is always an important way for shoppers to give back to the local community and, this season more than any other, is a great time to say thanks to the merchants who could use our support.
